What are Section 7.11 and Section 7.12 Contributions?

The Two Categories of Local Infrastructure Contributions

Section 7.11 Contributions (Formerly Section 94)

Section 7.11 contributions, formerly known as Section 94 contributions, are financial levies imposed on developments that will lead to a net increase in population within a specific area. They are intended to address the increased infrastructure demand resulting from the development. Therefore, they are typically allocated to projects supporting the local community such as roads, parks, and facilities. These contributions are typically based on square meterage.

Section 7.12

Section 7.12 Contributions (Formerly Section 94A)

Section 7.12 contributions are an alternative to Section 7.11. These are charged as a percentage of the estimated value of the development and usually cover utilities more specific to the particular project. Additionally, Section 7.12 allows for negotiation between the developer and council, and may even be used in combination with Section 7.11.

Additional information on the legislation determining Section 7.11 and Section 7.12 Contributions in NSW can be found on the NSW Government website.
